Hampi - options to go to Hampi from Hyderabad

I am going to be in Chennai and Hyderabad for a week each in late Jan/early Feb, and would like to visit Hampi from HYD. Would appreciate any suggestions as to the options of getting there - train, bus, etc. Also, might I be able to do justice to Hampi in a day?

I thought Hampi was overrated, I spent two days there, but only used one for sightseeing. It was difficult to get to. The roads in Karnataka were dreadful, although some road works were underway. However there are currently three night trains from Hyderabad to Hospet, the transport hub for Hampi. Unfortunately, they don't look like very good night trains. (See cleartrip.com for schedules, seat61.com for general train info.)
